Start pickling with this easy pickling brine! Believe me when I say that opening your fridge and seeing your own homemade pickles is pretty cool. And you don’t have to be a kitchen whiz by any means – the ingredient list looks lengthy but calls for no more than a trip to the nearest grocery store’s spice rack and the use of one pot.
I get my glass jars at the dollar store. Try it once, then, if needed, you can tweak the spices to your taste. FYI, the sugar included will not make this sweet, only balance the tartness. If you like it sweeter, taste a bit of the brine once cooked and adjust.
